Climate change influences basic health requirements: clean air, drinking water, sufficient food and safe housing. The main impact of climate change on people’s health is to do with increased deaths due to heat waves, but also many other factors.

Increased temperatures and global change can increase vector-transmitted diseases, which is why established vigilance protocols should be continued. The city has a device for handling heat waves, within the framework of the POCS, although there is likely room for improvement in responding to these situations.
